Whispered Hopes

This is a record of the Whispered Hopes Project. An installation created for the Whitley Arts Festival in Reading in October 2011. The piece is made up of over 1000 voices overlapping, whispering their hopes, dreams and aspirations for the future. Whispered Hopes includes the voices of people from Whitley, the Allied Arms, Care Homes in Reading and Theale Green Community School. It was shown at the altar and in the choir of Saint Mary's Church in Reading. It is best listened to with headphones on. The underlying sound is made from the very first whisper that was recorded. It has been stretched and had the noise removed to reveal the hidden music within.
